Other Observations About The Scammer:
My name is Jacinta Hyland I am a 53 year old woman from MOOLOOLABA Queensland AUSTRALIA 4557
I have recently been approached by many scammers but the following scammer is very persistent and keeps annoying me
I have NEVER sent any money overseas at any given time so financially I am not out of pocket but I am very keen to help in the stopping of these scammers who do get to take advantage of innocent people.
The photo used is a well known photo on scammer sights. The poor guy in the photo is known as “the oil rig man” by scam watch. He is still saying he is on an oil rig, he’s from Wharton Texas, wife died 4 years ago and has a 5 year old son being cared for by a nanny,he pays for.
He originally asked for ITUNE cards, now he needs $38000USD, as there has been a fire on the rig and his equipment has been damaged and his insurance wont cover it because he did not pay the premium in the past 6 months
His dad has also taken ill and been put in hospital and he is also gong to need help with medical bills
The scammer gets you to leave face book or messenger and wants to be able to chat in Viber or Hangouts as his profile has been stolen from face book a number of times LOL
At Christmas time he wanted me to put $500 into a bank in Houston Texas so his nanny could buy his son some gifts as his contract has gone over date and he couldn’t make it home. Upon checking the account it was linked to Houston University. I am trying to locate that address for you now as I don’t think I deleted it.
He has given me the following account to put the $38000 USD into:
Bank of America
Acc # 334050381599
Routing # 026009593
Reference: Automobile Sales
2223 N Druid Hills Road NE
ATLANTA GA 30329
It is only my phone that has hangouts connected to it as I am to scared to connect my pc to it in case my accounts are hacked.
I am sure you can see that yourself how active this poor mans photo is over the internet, especially being used to target middle aged woman.
The scammer still contacts me having NO idea that I know he is a scammer. I am just hoping to be able to get another bank account number out of him. He of course offers to send you copies of his “Saipem” work contracts and Id, which of course we know are all fake.
The story the scammer uses is of course the same story each time with a few changes re how many children, divorced etc
As soon as I locate the first bank details sent to me I will email them onto you.
